as far as vancouvers lines.. as far as i know the sedins are playing as well as samuelsson and luongo
So what your saying is that BR with that line for a couple of games wasnt as effective as the line with Blake in the second half of the season...after they played half a season together. Shocker.
I dont know what to say if anyone can honestly tell me they believe that line wont be better with Ryan on the wing. I dont think Ryan should be on their wing, but just saying.
